Fijian Civil Service

Learn and Develop

About Learning and Development in the Civil Service


As new trends, technologies and challenges emerge, we are committed to equipping civil servants with the tools and knowledge they need to perform at a higher level.

By encouraging ongoing learning and development, the Fijian Civil Service will ensure a culture of continuous improvement, efficiency and quality service delivery to the Fijian people.

What are our approaches to learning and development?

We acknowledge that workplace learning can happen anywhere, at any time and can be a combination of:

  • On job experience
  • Coaching and mentoring
  • Secondments and attachments, task force participation, job rotation and other workplace-based development opportunities
  • Conference attendance
  • Classroom learning/ courses or workshops
  • Distance learning including eLearning (electronic technology) and mLearning (mobile device)
  • Academic programmes leading to professional qualifications

Employees are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and development needs and for transferring new knowledge into their workplace. Managers lead by example, demonstrating continuous self-development and supporting their teams in their continuous improvement and in knowledge transfer.

Online Training


The Fijian Civil Service is shifting to new dimensions of learning. The ‘Moodle’ is an online learning platform that will give civil servants greater access, flexibility and continued support so that learning is a rich and meaningful experience.

In the first stages of roll out, Moodle will be used for induction training of newly appointed civil servants, offering reading materials, course materials and quizzes.
